  October's Child

The Pen in Repose





Seasons are turning into sketches of gray
Still life reflections shadow everything I say
Three dimensional objects leading the way
Into vanishing points, where I oft times play

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Images and ideas move across a white page
A dabble in pastels become the latest rage
Sketching the characters on a charcoal stage
Life takes on form from age to age

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Figures become lovers; pencil an embrace
Circles become life; a father's kind face
Imaginations amid reality, both share a space
Lines taking shape, perspectives interlace

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Abstract quietude; a long stemmed rose
Silence is erased; the candlelight glows
Butterflies and bunnies; color filled o's
Colored pencil memories; the pen in repose


Le stylo dans repos
